Each Winter just as fashion week is ending, Pantone releases a color of the year. The color of the year can be seen trending in fashion, design, accessories, and makeup, and this year is no different.
This year’s bold color is the perfect place to get inspiration for your next pair of glasses. Somewhat purple, somewhat blue with a red undertone, the color—lovingly named Very Peri—instantly creates a good mood. Pantone even goes on to say it’s “dynamic presence encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.”
The color of the year is selected through a year of research and trend forecasting, and of course, focusing on what is going on around the world. Everything from sports to fashion to popular video games will influence the color choice. With inspiration from lavender and lilac, these two flowers were meant to offer a calming note during chaotic times.
Past years have offered more obvious color choices, like the 2021 duo of a soft grey and yellow to serve as a “light at the end of a tunnel.” This cheerful color serves up something fresh and exciting—a note to inspire your next pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses.
If you’re not ready to fully commit to colored eyewear, these two-tone frames offer you the best of both worlds and provide just a hint of color. Plus, the translucent coloring feels more wearable than opaque frames.
On a different two-tone note, these Tom Ford periwinkle frames and baby blue interiors work together to create a soft tonal look. The wire arms and acetate frames provide best-of-both for delivering style and streamlined comfort.
For those not afraid of both color and print, you should be rocking a frame as bold as you are. These Kensie frames feature Very Peri accented by a colorful print.
Playful and glamorous—these Ray-Ban frames offer both. The oversized acetate frame is delightfully chunky and bold, while the dusty periwinkle offers a playful note. The stylish frames are finished off by Ray Ban’s classic adornment and logo.
Translucent frames aren’t just trend-forward in the eyeglass world and these Modo sunnies prove that point. The oversized cat-eye shape and periwinkle hue offer a soft feminine touch to any outfit.
If you’re fully ready to embrace purple in your wardrobe you’ll appreciate these tonal violet stunners. Lilac lenses are framed by gradient purple frames with perfectly modern gold accents. The rounded oval shape matches the playfulness of the color palette.
